ON our last trip just as I was loading the toad on the dolly I heard an awful scraping noise. My dolly has folding ramps and I forgot to lock the ramps in. My oops gave the toad some nice ramp scrapes to the front air dam. We were less than six feet into our trip and had already done some damage. Later on that same trip we got another oops. My dw feeling bad because she had not driven any of the 700 plus mile decided to give me a break and drive the toad while we were camped. We got in and started to back up and bang a tree jumped behind the car. You guessed it, we were less than six feet off the dolly and that oops cost me a big dent in the rear bumper. (my poor car). **it happens, I have now added lock ramps and check for jumping trees to our check list.

Welcome to the club of oops.. The last post reminded me of a time, last year, when I was loading the toad on dolly, and drove too far, yes the toad was on the tow bar. Now with amazement, this being the first time this had ever occurred in more than 200+ loads. With some help from ford pickup pulled the toad back. Not a problem I explained this had never happened before. So then loading again, oops did the same thing.. when over the ramps.. OMG... now as of note has not happened again since. Or the time last coach backed into a post in front of a power pole at a campground.. Have cameras everywhere, didn't have them on, that was the last time I have driven 400+ miles in a day, was pretty tired, you learn as you go..
